Purpose of the Commission

  • To develop and improve the methods and techniques of borehole-based stress-strain observatory, especially for calibration technology;
  • To promote experimental studies on deep-borehole stress profile measurement;
  • To advance the research collaboration associating the crustal stress with seismicity, seismogenesis, and rock failure process.

Product of the Commission

  • Summarize the present researches of borehole-based stress-strain observatory and recommend the related observation techniques by a report of technical specifications and publish one book about calibration of borehole strainmeterst;
  • Investigate the measurement of in-situ crustal stress profile for deep-borehole and borehole-based stress-strain observatory and provide deep well comprehensive (stress-strain, tilt, earthquake, geomagnetism, water level, geothermal, etc.) observation technology;
  • Advance the investigation of relationship between crustal stress and earthquake based on stress observation to give an evaluation report;
  •  Organize 2 academic workshop named as the “Crustal Stress and Earthquake” during the four years and publish one special issue on international journal on natural hazard.
